Are you organizing an academic conference or a summer school?
Have you prepared a call for articles for your peer-reviewed journal or want to announce a fellowship to honor someone in your department or University?
Maybe you offer a scholarship to students, or you have a wonderful grant for international researchers?
Do you need more people from international academic circles to learn about your academic event or opportunity?
If these are the questions that you care about, then this guide is for you.
There are only several recognized international academic resources/platforms, which will help you disseminate your announcement to international targeted readership and assure that it will be delivered to those who will for sure apply to your opportunities.
1. Mailing lists
Basically, each academic discipline has a community of followers or associations, which in their turn possess one or several specialized mailing lists.
Usually, students and researchers, faculty members, and professors somehow become a part of such mailing lists, though those lists are never widely promoted or advertised.
If you want an academic opportunity organized by you in a specific field to be distributed as widely as possible, please, first of all, identify such mailing lists and become a subscriber of those lists.
If you are a subscribed member of such academic mailing lists, it is always free of charge to send your announcement to all subscribers.
Some mailing lists have moderators, and your announcement may undergo a review process before being published.
H-net is one of the biggest Humanities networks for academic announcement publishers.
It is divided into many small and big sub-chapters for each discipline.
You have to sign in and create a full user profile, and after that, you will be allowed to publish your announcement across hundreds of categories and disciplines.
H-net provides a detailed list of all its subcategories and disciplines with the number of subscribers.
So whenever you publish your announcement on H-net, it will also be distributed via email to all those who have subscribed to a particular list.
You may publish any information about upcoming conferences, conference programs, scholarships, fellowships, new journal content, introduce a new academic website, or any other relevant announcement in H-net.
Sometimes the published announcement may undergo a review by the H-net admins.
This resource possesses a huge mailing list of interested people in various academic fields who have previously subscribed to academic disciplines of their interest.
Jobs.ac.uk primarily publishes announcements from UK-based universities, academic and research institutions, and foundations and NGOs.
Apart from this, any organization beyond the UK may also publish an announcement here.
There are different pricing policies for announcement publishing on jobs.ac.uk ranging from £199 till £2635.
ARMACAD is a complete academic announcements’ publishing solution.
You can publish any academic program in any discipline starting at $250 for one announcement on this website.
While publishing the announcement, you may specify the disciplines that the announcement belongs to and the categories, such as scholarship, fellowship, summer school, a conference call for paper, etc. More importantly, ARMACAD allows you to specify the host country of the program and the eligible country from where the applicant may apply.
As soon as your article is published, it will be distributed to subscribed users of ARMACAD who had previously specified their academic disciplines, countries of residence, and categories of interest (i.e., conference, research programs, scholarships)
In this sense, you may rest assured that your academic announcement will be received by a targeted readership worldwide. Moreover, after being published, the announcement will also be shared on ARMACAD's Facebook and Twitter pages.
ARMACAD published announcements are also very well indexed by search engines, and a lot of readers are coming to ARMACAD’s website from google and bing and find what they had exactly searched for.
Readers can also register in ARMACAD and use the “Save in my favorites” tool to get deadline reminders directly to their email as the deadline to apply to the particular opportunity approaches.
ARMACAD will offer you a fully functional dashboard to follow the statistics of each published announcement and, if you activate the feature, to receive applications directly in ARMACAD.
ARMACAD also has 24 hours customer support, and there is always someone to help you out.
